Clean Energy Fuels Corp. will construct and operate two compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle fueling stations in the New York City area, the company said. The first station will be in Queens, and the second will open adjacent to Newark, NJ’s Liberty International Airport. Designed to support growing fleets of CNG taxis, limousines and paratransit vehicles, the Queens and Newark Airport stations will also be available 24 hours a day for public access. The Queens facility is to be built on property owned by New York City’s largest taxi fleet owner. Construction is set to begin in May with a targeted opening slated for fall. The Newark Airport station is to be co-located with a new convenience store. The Clean Energy/Newark Airport Plaza CNG station is scheduled to open in June. Clean Energy has a CNG station at LaGuardia Airport and has assumed management of four of National Grid‘s CNG stations in the New York metropolitan area, including the station at John F. Kennedy International Airport. The Seal Beach, CA-based company recently struck a fleet deal with AT&T (see Daily GPI, April 5).
